HD-TX-4KZ-401

DM Lite® 4K60 4:4:4 Transmitter and 4×1 Auto-Switcher for HDMI® Signal Extension over CATx Cable

Interoperability with a DM Lite® receiver or DMPS Lite™ switcher to provide point-to-point extension of an HDM® signal over a CATx cable. Supports 4K60 4:4:4 video, HDR10+, and HDCP 2.3. Provides four HDMI inputs with automatic switching capability.

Description

The HD‑TX‑4KZ-401 is a DM Lite® 4K60 4:4:4 transmitter designed to interoperate with a DM Lite® receiver or DMPS Lite™ switcher for the transmission of an HDMI® signal. A CAT5e or higher twisted pair cable is used to connect the HD‑TX‑4KZ‑201 to the DM Lite receiver or DMPS Lite switcher. For 1080p, WUXGA, and 2K signals, a cable length of up to 230 ft (70 m) is supported. For UHD and 4K signals, a cable length of up to 130 ft (40 m) is supported.1

Interoperability with a DM Lite Receiver or DMPS Lite Switcher
The DM Lite output port of the HD‑TX‑4KZ-401 must be connected to a DM Lite input port of a DM Lite receiver or DMPS Lite switcher. Examples of supported DM Lite 4K60 4:4:4 receivers are the HD‑RX‑4KZ‑101, HD‑RXA‑4KZ‑101, HD‑RXC‑4KZ‑101, and HD‑RXCA‑4KZ‑101. Supported DM Lite 4K60 4:2:0 receivers are the HD‑RX‑101‑C‑E, HD‑RXC‑101‑C‑E, HD‑RX‑201‑C‑E, HD‑RX‑101‑C‑1G‑E, and HD‑RXC‑101‑C‑1G‑E. Supported DMPS Lite switchers are the HD‑PS622, HD‑PS621, HD‑PS402, HD‑PS401, and HD‑RX‑4K‑210‑C‑E(‑POE).

The HD‑TX‑4KZ-401 can be configured and controlled only when it is used with a DMPS Lite switcher. The web interface of the switcher can be used to configure the HD‑TX‑4KZ-401. In addition, control system programming and .AV Framework™ software support of the HD‑TX‑4KZ-401 is hosted by the switcher.

4K60 4:4:4 and HDR Support
The HD‑TX‑4KZ-401 supports video resolutions up to 4K60 with 4:4:4 color sampling. HDR10, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision® video formats are also supported.2

Automatic Switching of Inputs
When the HD-TX-4KZ-401 is used with a DMPS Lite switcher, the web interface of the switcher or control system programming hosted by the switcher can be used to configure the switching behavior of the HD-TX-4KZ-401. Switching among the four HDMI inputs can occur based on the last connected input or on the routing priority assigned to each input. In addition, input selection push buttons on the front panel of the HD-TX-4KZ-401 enable the desired input to be selected manually.

Compact, Surface‑Mountable Design
Compact in design, the HD‑TX‑4KZ-401 can be mounted onto a flat surface such as the underside of a table, behind a credenza, or inside a podium. It can also be attached to a single rack rail in the back of an equipment cabinet. The HD‑TX‑4KZ-401 can receive power from the included power pack or from the remote DM Lite receiver or DMPS Lite switcher.3

  1. For DM Lite connections, use Crestron DM-CBL-8G, Crestron DM‑CBL‑ULTRA, or third-party CAT5e or higher cable. To safeguard against unpredictable environmental electrical noise that may impact performance at resolutions above 1080p, shielded cable and connectors are recommended for all applications and are required when bundling multiple cables in a wire run. Cables are sold separately.
  2. 4K60 4:4:4 performance and HDR support require the use of HDMI cables and couplers with a minimum TMDS bandwidth of 18 Gbps. If 4K60 4:2:0 or 4K30 4:4:4 performance is acceptable, cables and couplers with a minimum bandwidth of 10.2 Gbps may be used. Bandwidth loss is cumulative; therefore, performance may be reduced when inserting multiple cables and couplers inline.
  3. When a surface-mountable DM Lite transmitter is paired with a surface-mountable DM Lite receiver, either the power pack included with the transmitter or the receiver can be used to power both devices. A power pack must not be connected to both devices simultaneously.

    When a surface-mountable DM Lite transmitter is paired with a wall plate DM Lite receiver, the power pack included with the transmitter is used to power both devices.

    When a DM Lite transmitter is paired with a DMPS Lite switcher, the switcher provides power to the DM Lite transmitter. The DM Lite transmitter must not be connected to the included power pack.

  4. The HDMI input requires an appropriate adapter or interface cable to accommodate a Dual-Mode DisplayPort or DVI signal. CBL-HD-DVI interface cables are sold separately.
  5. Examples of supported DM Lite 4K60 4:4:4 receivers are the HD‑RX‑4KZ‑101, HD‑RXA‑4KZ‑101, HD‑RXC‑4KZ‑101, and HD‑RXCA‑4KZ‑101. Supported DM Lite 4K60 4:2:0 receivers are the HD‑RX‑101‑C‑E, HD‑RXC‑101‑C‑E, HD‑RX‑201‑C‑E, HD‑RX‑101‑C‑1G‑E, and HD‑RXC‑101‑C‑1G‑E. Supported DMPS Lite switchers are the HD‑PS622, HD‑PS621, HD‑PS402, HD‑PS401, and HD‑RX‑4K‑210‑C‑E(‑POE).
